Coverage In Las Vegas, Nevada

Coverage In Las Vegas, Nevada

I am new to this site. So far it looks like a great site. I wanted to know how other Sprint users feel about the coverage in Southern Nevada. I have had Sprint since 12-1998 and had no problems.

Re: Coverage In Las Vegas, Nevada

I moved from Henderson in Nov. but the coverage was awesome in the Valley. I even found it decent going up to Mount Charelston. There were dead spots going up there but that is to be expected and with the recent tower addition in the area it should be even better. Overall I would rate that one of the best Sprint markets I have been to. One thing that amazed me when I first went out there was the fact that I could hold calls going through the airport tunnel.

I briefly worked in the Las Vegas market for Sprint and have to give kudos to their RF / operations / site development people.  Their coverage planning is some of the best I've seen.  Another large factor is the city and communities themselves ... with reasonable zoning and permitting ordinances (from what I can tell), it allows Sprint to deploy needed network resources in months rather than years.

I just took a look at the tower maps for Las Vegas and let me say it is just stacked full of coverage. Probably the best cell site spacing I have ever seen!

The Las Vegas zoning board really works with the carriers and try to do what works for everyone. They don't tend to deal with NIMBYS for cell towers too much as I have seen them ask those that oppose and are present if they have a cell phone. When they all say yes that pretty much deals a blow to them. If you have a cell phone but fight towers it just doesn't seem right. Most of the towers out there are palm trees or pine trees so most people don't oppose them in their yard as they don't have to water them trees.

That is why I am so surprised when people complain about their coverage. I hardly ever travel and use my phone all southern Nevada with great coverage. I guess I am lucky to have a well covered city unlike someother people. I think it helped that Sprint was the only landline carrier here for a long time. They offered Landline, long distance, wireless, dsl and paging.

Are you the same Antonio from Vegas who used to post on the usenet groups about 6 or 7 years ago?

I have experienced all carriers in the Las Vegas Valley and I can say from experience, Sprint has the fastest network in the Valley IMO. When I travel I normally always have an EVDO connection most of the places I've been.

Las Vegas is among the first cities to enjoy 4G wireless connections from Sprint.  Check out the 3G/4G USB Modem U300, the first device from any wireless carrier to offer access to both 3G and 4G.

Sprint 4G delivers peak downlink speeds of more than 10 Mbps and average downlink speeds of 3-6 Mbps – three to five times faster than the 3G service offered by any carrier today, based on average download speeds.
